to high-speed internet to answer the areas of the u.s. tonight at 8:00 p.m. on c-span to. after european leaders struck a deal, the presidents of the european council addressed members of parliament. part of it includes a second rescue financial plan with banks taking a 50% of laws on greek that. this one hour debate include opening remarks. >> i come to both of you, dear president, thank you for coming. only six hours after the last conclusions on the euro summit. i would like to ask the president of european councils for taking the floor. >> thank you, mr. president. dear colleagues, good morning. as i said, only a few hours ago , all the institutions and governments have been spending a significant political capital on dealing with the debt crisis. the situation was involving into a systemic concern. it had to be contained. that is what we've done. last night was a crucial political step which still requires technical and legal follow-up. sometimes i hear complaints that markets do not give democracies at the time we need to get things approved. there is some truth in it. i am deeply
environment, are you dealing with foreign contractors, u.s. contractors, or both? >> we are dealing with both. we did not deal with domestic non-war contractors. we wanted strong reforms, but for overseas contract thing. techniques that reduce the amount of procedure. we are not trying to impose them on domestic, non-wartime contract and. >> recommendations on how to be able to resolve that. that is not just an issue we deal with in contingency operations. we deal with that government wide, how often they are used and how they are applied? are there recommendations coming out of that as well? >> there are several. in appropriate cases, it should be suspended and debarred without holding a mini-trial domestically. we have seen cases where it is impossible to get witnesses domestically to do a suspension trial. >> with your permission, sir? >> yes. >> when i served on the committee, i was stunned by the white we -- the rights we give contractors when they worked for the government. it took us years to adjust what we paid them when they should be paid. if private business wants to engage a contr
that 15% is obviously 15% that for that period of time is not being used for that training purpose. i swing either way depending on the day and what i had for lunch. >> well, that doesn't do any good if there's not oversight to bring it to the surface. what are we doing and the american taxpayers funding many of the initiatives? what are we doing to make sure this is being rooted out and we discover this and then through training or oversight? how are we going to find that out? are we doing a good enough job in that regard? >> my own view is i give us between a c-plus and b-minus now, but i do that with any program of this size that we're just getting started. your problems will almost always occur in the first two or three years of the massive programs. i don't care whether it's iraq, afghanistan, mexico, colombia, that's where the biggest number of problems are. we're out of thateriod now. you have a right to a of us what is our specific e scrabbluation -- evaluation and oversight mechanisms, and i believe that's the challenge for this year that we're still innd next year. part of t
has refused to join us at the negotiating table. throughout this time, this oslo time, there was another process that was unfolding on a parallel planes. that process was the deepening and expanding relationship between the united states and israel. the strategic alliance that did not exist before 1967. after that war, american policymakers spoke up and said there is a power in the middle east with which the united states should be aligned. israel proved to be a crucial asset for the united states during the cold war and for the fight against islamic extremism. people are most interested in what is happening in the u.s. on the peace process. i got into this job and found out everything i learned over 30 years is nothing compared to what i have learned as ambassador. it includes cooperation in the fields of technology sharing, missile development, other weapons, mutual training, commercial ties between the united states and israel. israel is america's 20th largest country in the world. america does more business with israel than it does with russia or argentina. one out
it gets you down for the use in agriculture, surveying and construction. the type of receiver you're talking about are not that kind of precision receiver. >> all right. >> under our proposal which puts us othe bottom end of our band under the minimm performance standards which are adopted internationally, we should be fine under the faa reviewing that. but all the testing of the faa received as was done by both the federal government and by industry shows that the aviation receivers perform much better than the mimum performance standards. so we are not talking about under our current level of proposals requiring any change out and let me repeat that because it's important. any change out of aviation receivers. if it was going to take eight to ten years to go through the certification process in order to do that that wouldn't be a commercially feasible business plan so what we have proposed is a use of spectrum that does not require any change at of the aviation procedures. and the problem i have in the teimony. the part that bothers me you said just now in the question should be
't have fuel, they allowed us to go to a recovery airfield. action took place on the ground. their army acted -- i was not in contact at all. the pilot, a message from the air traffic control costs from an army general. he instructed me to come back and land. i went back. half way, he said we have just enough fuel. when we landed, we only had eight minutes of fuel. when i landed, i was in charge of pakistan. >> how many of us have had bad flights and not had it worked out this well? let's move forward to 2004. there is a global poll taken. the president is the most popular relent -- president in the world. the relationships were strong. you were publicly supportive of president bush and the united states and the world -- the war of terror. polls in pakistan today show that the united states is used as the no. 1 external threat to the country. policy makers had very acute concerns about the way pakistan is going. if it is a good ally. the best thing we could understand after a few minutes of talking to you is, what went wrong? when you were president, did you already see the relationship
, the technical aspects. as we are doing that review, that prompted us to ask if we are sure we have the correct compensation package going forward. the timing of the review and not only the speed, but the deliberateness of it clearly ties into our budget concerns going forward and the budget and reductions we must meet, so all of that is coming together at the same time, and again, because we are trying to view the budget reductions strategically and as though they are interconnected, this does become part of that discussion, but it is not solely driven because it is a budget exercise. >> i wanted to jump to a concern i have heard at home and see if any discussion is taking place with this -- i have about 30 seconds left, but is there any incentive currently in the system, which i do not believe there is, to encourage people to stay 30 years? some of the concerns i have heard was that right now, we have many people retiring at 20 years, and we are losing that knowledge and all that experience. is there anything being looked at to encourage people to stay longer? >> as we look at our review, we
on outside of school. your circle of friends may be changing. issues that used to it stay confined it to the hallways are now pounding -- finding their way to facebook and twitter. some of your family is now also be feeling the strain of the economy. as you know, we're going for one of the toughest economic times in my lifetime. your lifetime has not been this long. but as a consequence, you may have to pick up an after-school job to help bought your family or maybe your babysitting for younger sibling because mom or dad is working next shift. all of you have a lot on our plates. you guys are growing up faster and interacting with a wider world in a way that old people like me frankly did not have to. i do not want to be just another adult to talk to you like you're just kids because you're not just kids. you are young leaders. whether we fall behind or raise had as a nation, it depends a lot on you. this starts with, obviously, being the best student that you can be. this does not mean that you have to have a perfect score on every assignment. it does not mean you have to all the
this evening were joining us to talk about the life and legacy of charles evans hughes. my first guest is an historian, david pietrusza, and bernadette meyler is a professor at cornell law school. i want you to set the stage for us. 1916, woodrow wilson wants to be reelected. frame what was going on in the country and the presidential campaign. >> president wilson said it would be a tragedy if his administration was defined by foriegn policy. it turned out to be just that. america starts his term focusing on the progressive era, the income tax, lowering the tariffs, the federal reserve system. changes that after 1914. we have the war in europe. america is fighting to stay out. but there is a question of preparedness for the war. are we prepared? are we being tough? are we weak? the secretary of state resigns from wilson's cabinet because he thinks we're being too tough. is really a question of war and peace in europe, war and peace in mexico. aside from all the domestic issues. war overshadows everything. >> how does he get from the supreme court to the nominating process? >> he gets t
. [laughter] >> patricia rights, what are the imications and the world currency replaces the u.s. dollar? >> it is like asking the estion like what is going to happen to the world that if people all of a sudden -- we will not have a world currency. the unitedtates it's a great advantage at of the fact that the dollar is a central currency of the world. it is an important asset, and is why all four of us agree that we have to do everything that we can to keep the american economy strong by ensuring that the growth of the federal debt is not excessive and we have to keep the economy strong by ensuring that it grows so that the other remains the key rrency of the world. >> christine, for senator simpson. if president obama had and that it recommendations of the national commission on fiscal responsibility reform, or with the economy be right now? >> i don't know where the economy would be, but he would have been savaged to pieces, and that is why he did not dit. but the economy would have been lifted. i know my colleagues of the other faith know that president clinton went to president obam
and put their lives out there for us and now find that they are 54 years old and they cannot find a job and have not had a job for 10, 12 years. they go into homelessness and different things. that is what happens. that is the reality of life. whether the economy is good or bad, it has happened. even during the bad times, we still had veterans on the street. that is a travesty. we should not have that. we should never have that. secretary solis is part of the homeless council and so is secretary sean second. they said in five years we want to eliminate the homeless. we're working on it as hard as we can. within dol we have certain programs in veteran employment service programs. we have hbrp which are reintegration programs. bringing in veterans' to a certain site and helping them not only deal with the fact they are unemployed and on the streets but the first thing we have to do is we have to get rid of those demons. i will use chris for a second. i'm sure when he first -- >> i and the demon.

their mortgage payment, i think you'd agree and most of us would agree, if you asked people what the number one issue is facing a country today, it is the lack of jobs or jobs that do not pay what they used to. it is really at the root of everything we're facing. >> for 90% of americans, they say they're in fear that they will lose their jobs and their income will let go appearup. -- their income will not go up. >> so jobs. without robust than significant sustained private-sector growth, any jobs plan or a plan would have to there when the president is proposing, any thing that purports to be a judge plan has to primarily look at what effect it will have -- be a jobs plan has to primarily look at what effect it will have on private sector. >> absolutely. one is to help rebuild the american infrastructure and to reduce some of the pressure on cities across the country that have to reduce first responders and teachers further. >> but even like infrastructure, with human capital, all of it is designed with what government can do to ease the pressure and help the economy grow. and your plan calls f
and uterus and i use both. [laughter] >> unfortunately pat sloweder could not join us today, but she asked me to read you this message. quote, back in 1991 when i was cochair of the congresswoman's caucus, i organized us to make one-minute speeches about our great so-called liberal leaders on the senate judiciary committee. these guys just didn't get it. they were ignoring sexual harassment allegations against clarence tomas and didn't want aany that hill to testify. we decided to march over and talk to them in person. march, we did. you may remember seeing front page pictures of us striding up the front of the building. we knocked firmly on the door. [knock, knock] majority leader george mitchell opened it. sorry, he said, we don't let strangers into the building. strangers? we were dumbfounded, but we had the presence of mind to point out the huge press corps following in our wake. george mitchell quickly agreed to meet with us later in his office and at that meeting he agreed to pressure the committee into letting anita hill testify. they begrudgingly put her on the witness list but not in
minutes. >> it's worthwhile because few countries have been as important to each other as the u.s. and pakistan have been since the early 1950's. and yet as anyone who reads the paper or watches the news knows the importance of u.s.-pakistan relations does not make it satisfactory to either country, nor does the importance mean the two governments trust each other. in washington the feeling is that the relationship in the past was broken because pakistan pursued interests and activities it knew were contrary to u.s. interests as in the nuclear program in the 1980's and that washington would have to hold back. in pakistan it's felt increase i will that the united states is a fair weather friend and it has abandoned pakistan before and it will again. we see a similar tension here today in the relationship and discourse between the two, a concern that in fact the interests are contrary enough that there will be yet another separation. there are a number of elements of mutual frustration but again the point of mutual importance remains. therefore, it's worthwhile to try to explore way
to do to manage this transitional period. >> we have chinese businesses in the u.s. you put up with citing figures about chinese businesses. in the launch of your report, secretary gary locke said it is great we have so many chinese businesses investing in the states, but there is an imbalance. we look to the day when china is as open to us as we are to them. what is your reading of what he said? do you buy that argument? do you see this imbalance he pointed to? >> embassador gary locke has tremendous experience with this issue. you can argue either way. americans were ready to invest in china 50 years before china opened to foreign investment. many of them were born in shanghai in the 1920's. this was not a new story for america, incorporate when the 1970's and 1980's rolled around. there is $15 billion of american assets in china at least, maybe more. there is only $14 billion of chinese assets in the united states. who is more open? what the ambassador meant is that the process is more straightforward on the u.s. side. much more attention is given to the process for investme
governor thomas dewey's presidential campaign. he used this suite, number 1527 whenever he was in new york during his 12 years as governor and he and his family and his closest aides gathered in these rooms on election night. joining us is richard norton smith historian, biographer of dewey and author of many books. it is november 2, 1948, at the roosevelt hotel. what happens here? >> well, the day began with virtually unanimity in the nation's press corps that this election was over, that it was thomas e. dewey's to lose. there were polsters who had stopped polling shortly after labor day they were so convinced there was no contest, really. governor dewey and mrs. dewey went to vote at midday not far from here. they were cheered all the way. he got out of his car and decided to walk back to the hotel. reporters thought that was a good sign. it was the new dewey, the thawed dewey, the warm, more personable dewey that they had seen on the campaign trail. they had a election night tradition of having dinner with their friends roger strauss who was a publisher. they went there for early dinne
would come back to him. u.s. senator thomas dewey of new york. u.s. senator taft from ohio -- mr. republican. this was a convention in philadelphia that went for six hours. >> and nobody had come from the business side. nobody was actually doing that except for wendell willkie. he certainly rose up and had an electric personality and magnetic energy about him. >> you obviously never knew your grandfather. as you talk to family members who knew him, he died at the age of 52. we will learn more about his life. why did he ultimately decide to run for the nomination? he did set the groundwork in 1939 for a possible presidential bid in 1940. >> he was always interested in politics, even from growing up in his hometown. of elwood, indiana, which is just up the road from here. he talked about it in his life, in his childhood with his parents, when they got to college -- it was always an integral part of his life. >> we are in rushville, indiana, one of the homes of wendell willkie. we are inside the historical society. i want to turn back here and look at this. if you can explain what t
hope they bring the lessons they learned with them for rob left. -- and throughout life. many of us are reluctant to talk about the risks in playing sports because we know what a positive role they play in our community. and the other hand, the last thing we could do is not talk about this problem of concussions, dear, and the rest of it. america has to have this conversation. there will be many hearings on it, i know. in fact, more of our children should be playing sports, not fewer. to many are spending time in front of the computer, television screen, instead of the sports field peritonitis set every day by people involved in health care. -- field. that is set every day by the people involved in health-care. they say you need an hour of activity to stay healthy. only 17%, 1/3 of our children are overweight or obese which makes it more likely they will suffer from chronic health issues that will plague them the rest of their lives as indeed we talk about today could do to some. the risks are very real. we have heard about the national football league players who are struggling wit
that could potentially use nuclear weapons. with regard to reducing our nuclear arina, i think that is in the area or i do not think we ought to do that unilaterally. you ought to do that on the basis of negotiations with the russians and others to make sure we're all walking the same path. >> certainly. i agree with this comment him the army has spent $2.7 billion trying to build and and balances platform. it is a program that is now five years behind schedule. it is over budget. it fails to meet the needs of our soldiers. an article of. earlier detailing some of these failures. it explained the program was unable to perform the simplest tasks. is this system -- we have put $3 billion into the system. the gentleman's time has expired. >> i think you on their responsibilities. i look forward to many more sessions with you. as you know, the president's budget todaythey cut a total of 1.6 $5 billion out of the ground-based missile defense system. the only defense system currently in place, are you committed to the adequate resources and of the ground- based missile defense system
there is no other member. i would ask you to clarify the comments you made that the u.s. has met with the haqqanis network and urging pakistan to get tough with the haqqani network that has killed troops. one of your senior official said that, we were asked by isi to give this a try. which is it? crackdown or negotiate with the haqqanis network or a little bit of both? >> it is both. >> if you could elaborates. >> we want to buy it, talk, and build all at the same time. parts of the reason is to ask what could these organizations have willingness to negotiate in good faith. there is evidence going both ways. sometimes we hear that they well, that there are elements that wish to pursue that -- that they will, that there are elements that wish to pursue that. sometimes it is top of the table. with respect to the haqqani network, it illustrates -- sometimes it is off of the table. with respect to the haqqani network, it illustrates the point. they rounded up and eliminated more than 100 haqqani network operatives. we are taking steps to isolate the haqqanis leadership. we are increasing our efforts t
said he used to get confused with the bystanders and the visitors. that was before they got microphones. for years, he never spoke, which is hard to believe. then he sat in two seats. this gentleman with the beard and this one in the time. >> that was in 1911. smith became majority leader when the democrats took over. in 1912, they went into the minority. in 1913, he wound up being the speaker. >> right behind this is the speaker's chair. maybe 20 steps from where we are sitting is the speaker's office that al smith used. the current speaker, sidney sheldon -- sheldon silver, i am so sorry about that. and there is a portrait of al smith. >> the came from the same district. they both are democrats. they both were speakers of the assembly. it is interesting when you talk about -- it is almost 100 years ago that smith was speaker. 100 years later we have a speaker from the same district and political party. the neighborhood is still a very diverse neighborhood. smith became speaker on a fluke. new york state reapportionment was so heavily weighted in favor of republicans, that his democrat
terrorism. and other threats to us. this is all of the committees. and finally, in matters, who is running those committees. john mccain and senator levin are going to have a different perspective on foreign-policy and national-security issues than dick lugar and john kerry, their counterparts on foreign affairs. they're not necessarily better or worse, and other issues are more partisan or less partisan, they are all deeply involved in foreign policy but have their own biases and interests and areas of emphasis. there is a greater likelihood that you would follow the leadership and the development of those leaders. the final thing affecting their perspective is the events themselves. i did not expect i would be so involved in issues relating to iraq, as i ended up being, why was first elected in 1996. if you ask me what issues of foreign policy you will be involved with, you could ask many of those questions in 1998 or 2000, the issues -- the answers i gave you would have no rhyme or reason to what i was working on in 2002 and 2004 in the united states senate. having said all of that, not

for working with us. >> i thank the gentleman for is opening statement. we have only one witness today. we have mr. kenneth feinberg. mr. feinberg, you are the administrator of the gulf coast claims facility, as both of us noted. you have the very difficult task and we look forward to your testimony. you have been here before and you know that your full statement will appear in the record. if you could hold your oral arguments to five minutes, i know you want to get out of here and we will probably have votes. but the green light means you are doing fine. the yellow light means that you have one minute, and the red light means that your time is up. >> mr. chairman, i think you and them ranking member. i appreciate the -- invitation. it took about two seconds to agree to appear. i this is about my sixth visit and i'm glad to be here to talk about my -- the fund. here are a few statistics that are very telling. in the 14 months that we have administered this time, we have received just about 1 million claims from 50 states and 38 foreign countries. build it and they will come. there are some
fannie and freddie to, alongside us. that's one of limitation. the fact that it is a voluntary i'm not sure is a fundamental constraint, but it is there. we are still looking for ways to expand the reach of these programs. the fact that we still have resources available gives us some opportunity. we have proposed as part of the jobs at, asking to appropriate some to the department of housing, we think that would be helpful. we expect to move forward to make it easier for americans to refinance even if they are somewhat under water. we are trying to get a huge amount of vacant property still on the market into the hands of people who can rent. we are trying to reach as many people as possible. >> getting more authority, what would you say you have absolutely need? >> to help with the neighborhood's -- there are thousands of concentrated vacant properties. he need resources and that's why the jobs act has this fund to give substantially more resources. you would have to give us authority over fannie and freddie. >> we found out in these workshops that we were able to be successful.

want us to believe that the local attorney is -- has no responsibility for the case at all? is this really what the law requires? i think there is a serious ethical obligation when he gives the dakotas, he is one of the attorneys for your client. that was not returned? >> that is correct. >> he failed to check with new york lawyers who were working with him. why is the state responsible for that? >> first, the record shows notice is not attributable to mr. maples because mr. butler -- >> claimed it to do? how can the clock be expected to know that the local council wheat is not taking any part? >> i think from the clark's perspective, we think it is well known in alabama that under this unique system, out of state attorneys were doing all the work in this case. local council were facilitating the admission. >> mr. garre, is there anything in the record on that point? >> a couple of things, your honor. we do have the briefs that were discussed anecdotally. i would sit at the state of alabama and its brief specifically target the role of out of state attorneys under its syste
